Easy access from I-20. Only about 1.5 miles from I-20. Seems mostly seasonal. Very well kept, clean and maintained. Office personal helpful and friendly. Did not see any run down RVs. Interior roads are gravel. We stayed here overnight and did not hook up water or sewer. Our site had a very good view of a dumpster. The dumpster was located about 6 feet from the drivers side of our motorhome. Didn't smell anything and all trash was in the dumpster, nothing on the ground. We were in site 71, it's the only pull through here. The site was level, no leveling required. The owner prefers anyone just staying one night in this site not to unhook their tow vehicle. Kind of odd, but we didn't have any plans to unhook so not an issue. Didn't have any safety issues, felt secure here. WiFi is located throughout the park. There are 5 access points. We used access point 1 and had very good WiFi. I was able to connect using my WiFi over WAN. No problem with satellite reception. We would stay here again.

Nice older Navy FamCamp, but well maintained. It appears at one time it might have been the Navy base trailer park. Water pressure near 60 pounds and voltage around 118/119v. Interior roads are paved and in good condition. Restrooms are kind of unique. The restroom/shower/laundry building is a commercial trailer unit. There are 5 separate restrooms in the trailer. Each individual restroom is air condition, has its own door, toilet, sink and shower, very private. The laundry room is currently closed with a sign stating they are trying to order new commercial washers and dryers. Parking for your RV is on two long parallel cement pads. There is ample room to park even the largest pickup without being near the road. There is an cement patio. Lots of green grass that is mowed. Most sites have some sort of shade tree. According to the camp host the only site that can not get satellite reception is site 1. We had rain while here and our site did not flood. This FamCamp is located in Navy off base housing. With the campground located in base housing there are cement sidewalks everywhere. The base housing is well maintained and very clean. Security seems good. Security patrols the housing area night and day. The Commissary, NEX, MWR and ITT are all located within a mile of the campground. The only negative, not a fault of the campground, is the smell from the Kapstone Paper Mill. The mill is located a few miles south of here. At times smell from it is very strong. If you have ever been near a paper mill you know how nasty the smell can get.

Great military FamCamp! Very clean and well maintained. Gravel road throughout campground in good shape. All sites have concrete pad and level. There is a nice 'community center'. The center has free laundry, free BBQs to use, a complete kitchen and a separate card/dinning room. The campground also has free ice and they also sell propane in the campground. There is a pond for fishing with signs not to feed the alligators. We never saw any. Enter through the Franklin Gate and use the commercial lane. Easy access through gate, wide and no problem with clearance. Gate guards friendly and had directions to the RV Park. We did have a severe thunderstorm pass through while here. No problems with flooding at the site. There were just a few puddles in the road. Summer office hours are 9AM to 1PM during the summer and 9AM to 3PM in the winter. We arrived after the office was closed and the camp host checked us in. The host gave me a ton of information on the campground and things to do and where to eat. I checked in the office the next morning and a very friendly office worker check me in. Most people here appeared to be retired with a few sites with children. Overall a quiet campground.

This is a beautiful and well maintained campground. Even with just about every site full, this campground remained quiet throughout the night. The downside is you can't make reservations. We were fortunate enough to arrive on a Sunday afternoon and got a great waterfront site. There are two sections to this campground. The section closest to the main entrance is very crowded, but has the most level sites. This area is where most of the Class A motor homes stay. The second area is more open with more space between the sites. The negative part is most sites are not level for larger RVs. We were in a site that was 60 feet deep. But it was very difficult to get a proper level in our motorhome. In fact my right rear wheel was about 1 inch off the ground to get a good level. Overall this is a great county campground!

Very beautiful place to stay, although NOT a destination park. I find the price on the high side. The rate for the 'super site' (not sure that is what they call it) is 42.95 per night. With Good Sam discount and takes it down to $40.58 per night. We have stayed here numerous times going to and from Florida. This campground is strictly and 'overnight' campground, mainly because of the price. Each time we have stayed here we have been assigned a site that is NOT level. The motor home next to me has their front tires 3 inches off the ground to get level. Our site was cement with a 'tiny' exposed arrogate cement patio attached. Sites are closer than I like, but OK. Because of the beautiful trees and Spanish Moss satellite reception is almost impossible to obtain. I did see one or two single LNB antennas in use. Yes there is cable, but ALL channels are analog! If you have a newer digital HDTV you'll understand how poor an analog signal looks on your HDTV. Come on guys HDTV has been around for years and you can't even buy an analog Standard Def TV anymore. It's time to upgrade your cable system. I normally don't even connect to cable anymore as long as satellite is available. But when it's not available I want a good cable system available. There were three or four over the air stations digital channels available . I gave Eagle's Roost an overall 7 because of the price, un-level sites, small patio and inferior cable system. If they would drop their prices to about $30 a night I would rate them much higher. But for the amenities they currently offer, $43 per night is just way too much. The location just does not justify this price. There just is not much to choose from in this area. There is a KOA just on the other side of I-75 and another campground at exit 18 thirteen miles north of here and that's about it. So your choices are limited.

We had an ocean view site. In five nights here we saw four fantastic sunsets! The sites are narrow, almost too narrow to put your awnings out. I don't recommend doing this because of the constant wind coming off of the ocean. There was public walking access to the beach at the south end of the resort. It is a fairly easy hike, but near the bottom you will need to climb over rocks and cement to get to the beach. We will be back again!
